The Master eBay Selling Guide below is a collection of tips, tricks, and ways to maximize profit by selling on eBay collected from years of personal experience, forums, and sites all around the web. If you have read my previous two blogs and have followed the directions, right now you should have a feedback rating of 98-100%, have bough 5-10 items, researched items you might want to sell and categories you are interested selling in.
Adding a picture of your item is a must; around 30% more people look at items with pictures than items without, the more people who look at your item the better chance you have of selling it. Make sure you have a high quality digital camera, a bad photo is a great way to ruin an awesome eBay listing. A photo will show people exactly what they are buying.
Some final tips before I end this blog:
These next few tips and tricks are CRUCIAL to improving profit and only experienced seller's normally know of these.
1. Listing Time: If you want the most people to see your product as possible, set the auction up to end on between 7-9 pm. That is when most people are home, have unwound and ate dinner, and are on their computer. Sunday is probably your best option but Monday works as well. If you can't end it at those times, no worries, but you may lose out on a few bucks.
2. Always Add .99 onto Your Shipping: Pretty simple. Make your shipping 1.99 or 2.99 or 5.99 if you have a shipping price. Not $6 or $4. People don't always add up the costs of the cents and it gives you an extra dollar or more sometimes.
